Sin | [Shaun Allan]

Sin

Dead, dead, dead. Say it enough times and it becomes just another word. What would you do? Could you kill a killer? Does the death of one appease the deaths of a hundred? What about that hundred against a thousand? What if you had no choice? Meet Sin. No, not that sort of sin, but Sin, crazy as a loon (you ask Sister Moon), and proud of it. Sin locks himself away in an asylum and, every so often, gets violent. That's only so they'll give him those nice drugs, though. The ones that help him forget. It's a pity they don't work.

Publisher's Summary

Dead, dead, dead. Say it enough times and it becomes just another word. What would you do? Could you kill a killer? Does the death of one appease the deaths of a hundred? What about that hundred against a thousand? What if you had no choice? Meet Sin. No, not that sort of sin, but Sin, crazy as a loon (you ask Sister Moon), and proud of it. Sin locks himself away in an asylum and, every so often, gets violent. That's only so they'll give him those nice drugs, though. The ones that help him forget. It's a pity they don't work. Sin, you see, has a serious problem. Well, it's not so much his problem, as ours - yours, mine, and everyone else's. People die around Sin. He doesn't like it and there's nothing he can do about it. But someone else knows, and Sin has to stop them - and himself. Flip and catch.

    Story
    "Wild, wonderful prose, beautifully narrated"
    If you could sum up Sin in three words, what would they be?

    Shining, Brilliant, Awesome!


    What other book might you compare Sin to and why?

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest meets Finnegan’s Wake. Sin's madness is wild, touching, and sarcastic--and Shaun Allan's prose is fitting and stands beside any masterpiece of modern literary fiction. Watson's reading of it is moving, lyrical.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scenes, as Sin begins to realize his guilt, and the significance of the Twopence coin.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book is filled with powerhouse scenes, all of them moving.


    Any additional comments?

    Throughout the novel, Sin's ruminations are self-mocking, and world-weary, yet naive and innocent. He bears the guilt of the world, and suffers the unbearable pain of being the cause of so many deaths, but still he finds ironic humor in every situation. Joy is grounded and guides him to the truth, but is not allowed to tell him anything.

    Nothing is what it seems in this tale, and right up to the end, you are not sure which reality is real.

    The facts come out, or do they? This book is a roller-coaster ride from the start to the finish, and I give it 5 stars for originality, and if I could I would give this audio-book version ten!
